One of my regular blog-land visitors, Melissa, (such a lovely name, don't you think?) posted about to do lists. It made me think of mine. 'Course, she uses purple check marks and I use a hot pink cross-out line, but it is universally satisfying to cross a thing off a list, isn't it? In fact, if I get something done and it wasn't on my list, I will often write it on just so I can cross it off! Do any of you do that? Ha Ha!
And, completely unrelated to that (except in the sense of spending time that I maybe would have better spent on my list...) are these pictures of what's left of Annette's hairdo from yesterday. I call this a "crown braid". It's a French braid that wraps around her whole head. My mom used to do this with me except that side ponytails were more in style then so instead of braiding it to the tips of the hair and wrapping it over the top, she would tie it off and curl the ponytail that hung down at the side. Not that this is exactly "in style", just that I felt like I was hot stuff in a side ponytail back in the '80s!
It's pretty 'windswept' looking today but I think it looks so cute and if we weren't getting a family picture done this afternoon as well as going to church tonight, I would just leave it there all day.
It's so hard to get Annette to be happy with "up" hairdos. Despite the fact Cinderella wore her hair up to the ball, Annette does not count "up" hairdos as being beautiful. This one counted for her though. I think it helped that we went out that evening and quite a few people complimented her on it!
Annette LOVES flattery!
